For our TECHNOLOGY learning we took on the challenge of building RAFTS.
We learnt that a raft is a simple boat that can float and transport people and things.
Then we worked in teams to identify materials that would be suitable to make our own rafts. We found it tricky to put all of the materials together at first but worked together and helped each other! When our rafts were built, we tested them in the pool to see if they worked. Finally, we evaluated our work thinking about what went well and what we would change to make our rafts better next time. What amazing fun and great learning!
In LITERACY we have been telling spooky stories. We used our senses to think of spooky wow words and created our own images of different scary settings.
Next week we will continue our learning, writing our very own spooky descriptions.
In MATHS we continued our learning on multiplication. We used arrays to help us solve tricky times tables problems. We got really good at it too!
In LITERACY we worked on other poetic devices, such as onomatopoeia, alliteration and similes. We loved to be busy with alliterations and came up with many lovely words and sentences starting with the same letter. We also listened to the sounds of different means of transport and tried to write those down using the sounds in a creative way. Well done, Year 2! Next week we’ll be writing our poems and soon we will be performing them!
In MATHS we continued working with fractions, and this week we tried recognising, finding, naming and writing fractions 1/3,1/2,and 3/4 of a length, shape and set of objects or quantity.
